Athletics has been a rich part of the Asheville School tradition since the institution’s earliest days.

With its first game dating back to 1911, the school’s annual football game with Christ School is the oldest prep sports rivalry in the Carolinas. Additionally, the school community gathers together each season to honor our talented student athletes.

Today, 19 interscholastic sports teams compete during three separate seasons over the course of the school year. The school’s athletic facilities are considered among the best in the Southeast.

All freshmen and sophomores must play on one interscholastic team during the year, and approximately 75 percent of the student body chooses to play sports in any given year. The seasoned coaches are committed to providing activities that suits the skill level and interest of every student.

The school is a part of the Carolina Athletic Association (CAA) Conference and a member of the North Carolina Independent School Athletic Association (NCISAA).
